Color me...Subtle! #47- challenge

Good Evening!

This is my entry to the Color me... Subtle! #47- challenge.
This card got Honourable Mention at Color me...!

I wanted to participate this week's Color me...! Challenge and the colour combo there is Early Espresso, Soft Suede and Cajun Craze. A lot things went wrong while I was making this card, so the end result is way different than I originally thought it would be. Isn't it just fun though, that just changing the design you can hide your mistakes pretty well. :) I also bended the rules of the challenge a little bit, I needed to add some interest on the background ( read = among others hide my fingerprints) so I added a little bit of golden/yellowish colour.

All the stamps are from Purple Onion Designs and I coloured the images with Derwent Coloursoft pencils. 

Here is the photo of the same card. Hopefully, the shine of the Vintage Champagne Embossing powder is seen better here. I believe, the "wow" effect of this card is in those snowflakes, which catch your eye when looked at from a different angle. 

Here is the challenge's graphic:

Thank you for stopping by today and always pleased to here what you think! Thank you for your lovely comments on my previous cards. They have made my day many times!

  4. Just adorable! The depth you've created in your background and those gorgeous stars frame your little trio so well.

  5. This is so beautiful! Hadn't you said anything about "hiding mistakes" I would never have thought that you hadn't originally planed the card the way it finally turned out. I simply love this design!
